Late Night Consoling

Thanks for the continued "good job" posts guys, I'll gladly put this into more capable hands soon though.

Playstation 2 Xbox ESPN NFL 2005 Details You can find some new details on ESPN NFL 2005 on GameSpot this evening. According to GameSpot people can look forward to a expanded franchise mode, with one of the new features being a play-by-play visual simulcast like ESPN's GameCast. Don't like where the game is going? Switch to coaching and take control of the game. You can also control training and see players' workout schedules. Another new feature is called Maximum Tackle, allowing you to fine-tune the offense and defense of players. Also look for several ESPN personalities in the game providing league news, post-game analysis and interviews.
Playstation 2 Xbox Midway Results Midway released its first quarter 2004 financial results today, showing a $14.2 million net loss on $20.1 million in revenues. Though still not healthy the company is doing better than expected thanks to strong sales of The Suffering. As usual with these type of announcements there is game news to be found in the press release, namely the delay of NARC from 2004 to 2005, and the addition of Shadow Hearts: Covenant to its 2004 lineup. Other games Midway will be releasing this year include MLB SlugFest: Loaded, Psi Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy and Mortal Kombat: Deception.
PS2 Xbox New Panzer Dragoon Game? This one is for all the Panzer Dragoon fans out there. You know who you are. The latest Rumor Mill section of Electronic Gaming Monthly mentions that despite not too impressive sales of Panzer Dragoon Orta, Sega is supposedly working on a new PD game. Expected to be announced soon, the game will be more like the Saturn game Panzer Dragoon Saga in "style and tone". Thanks to a certain loony for the tip.
